Letter to the editor by Richard Johnson, includes “… Social Security ‘trust funds’ are not actual accounts holding cash, but rather smoke-and-mirror accounting devices that hold government IOUs. If that doesn’t convince you, glance at the U.S. Supreme Court case Flemming v. Nestor, which has its own Wikipedia page, where the court declared the government has the right to cut Social Security benefits anytime it wants and you have no right to sue over it.”
